An invalid 65-year-old man was discovered on a utility trailer by Lee County authorities and a Mooreville man is now in custody.

Lee County Sheriff’s officials say the man was placed on a utility trailer and left in the sun for several hours. The victim suffered dehydration and severe sunburn.

An investigation revealed the victim had been released from a medical center to a family member. The suspect, and victim’s brother, Charles Clifford, allegedly took the victim to another county and used a winch to load him on a utility trailer.  Clifford then strapped the victim to the trailer and left him outside in the elements.

Clifford was charged with injury to a vulnerable adult.
